The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Safety Features

The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is a remarkable vehicle. With one of the most efficient powertrains on the road, the Clarity combines electric power with a hybrid engine system to surpass EV range limits and reach distances an electric vehicle could have never gone before. The sedan also boasts a long list of safety features inside and out, from passive to active to driver-assist technology. Named a Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award Winner, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is impressing Metro Milwaukee Drivers.

  • Passive features include body structure design, airbags, seatbelts, and locks
  • Active safety features boost performance, even in inclement weather
  • Driver-assistive technology, such as the Honda Sensing suite, help prevent or mitigate accidents

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid features Honda’s innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure. The design utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants sitting inside. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check the surroundings of the Clarity before backing out. And with dynamic guidelines, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera includes three different views to choose from, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.

  • Normal View – Make sure there is a clear path behind the Clarity before reversing.
  • Wide View – This angle allows drivers to see vehicles, pedestrians, or cyclists that may be approaching the rear.
  • Top-Down View – This angle is especially helpful when parallel parking.

Honda LaneWatch

A small camera mounted on the passenger’s side mirror monitors activity going on in the driver’s blind spot. When a right lane change is signaled the camera displays a live video feed on the audio touchscreen inside the cabin. Honda LaneWatch allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.

A navigation system can guide drivers to their destination through unfamiliar areas and comes with voice recognition so drivers can input instructions without taking their hands off the wheel. And a security system and Walk Away Auto Lock ensures that the Clarity is protected when you leave it parked.
